Predicting Rain, Military Sexual Assaults, and Abercrombie’s Outlandish CEO

We start with a look at the powerful storm headed for Southern California. Could it make a dent in the drought, and can we expect wetter weather in the years and even decades to come? Then, a behind-the-scenes look at the wheeling and dealing over a drought relief bill. Next, a sobering new report on sexual assault in the military adds momentum to an effort to take such cases out of the chain of command. Then we take a look at the small, elite group of lawyers behind a disproportionate number of U.S. Supreme Court cases. Are the justices practicing favoritism? And finally, the rise and fall of Abercrombie & Fitch C.E.O. Mike Jeffries and how he compares to other eccentric and controversial American clothing makers.
